LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY - David, a Christian, just finished reading through the Bible for the fifth time and was seen shaking is head after he closed the Bible. He seemed to be mumbling things to himself and pacing back and forth. Some witnesses saw him scratching his head with a confused look in his eyes.
"I don't know what is bothering him. I hope he is okay", his friend Jeremy said. "I have never seen him this confused. Usually after he reads the Bible, he is full of life."
We met up with David to see what was going on. We asked him, why he was shaking his head after he had finished reading the Bible through for a fifth time. Here is what he had to say.
"I have read and studied the scriptures since I was saved seven years ago. I just finished reading the Bible for the fifth time, and I cannot find a single instance of where someone said, 'Pray this prayer', in order to be saved. It has really troubled me", David said. "Furthermore, I didn't see one verse that says, 'Ask Jesus into your heart'. Or, 'Repeat this prayer after me'."
David is clearly in distress. His church just recently held a week long revival meeting where every night, they sang a Hymn and gave an altar call, pleading with people to 'Ask Jesus into their heart', and to 'Pray this prayer'.
"I can't take this anymore", David said. "Does anyone read the Bible? They preached repentance towards God and faith towards our Lord Jesus Christ. They said, Repent and believe, not prayer this prayer and you're good."
David said he had to go. No one has seen him in a few days. One man spotted him reading "What is Reformed Theology" by R.C. Sproul. Who knows what might happen next.
